Howie Mandel's son Alex gives update on dad's health as AGT star 'plays dead' on floor after he was rushed to hospital

HOWIE Mandel's son gave an update on his famous father, as the America's Got Talent star pretended to lay dead on the floor behind him.

Alex Mandel flashed a big smile and gave a thumbs up as he took a selfie standing over his dad.

He captioned the Instagram story: "Don't worry, my dad is fine!"

Alex and Howier were obviously joking, and the two share a close relationship, as evident by the Instagram message the son sent to his dad on his most recent birthday.

 "I try every day to make my dad proud. He’s my mentor, my hero, and my best friend. I never stop learning new lessons from him and I feel so lucky to have him as a dad. Happy Birthday Dad, I love you."


But it was no laughing matter just days earlier, when the comedian was rushed to the hospital after fainting at an L.A. area Starbucks.

Howie was at a Starbucks in Woodland Hills, California, with his wife and friends on Wednesday when he suddenly passed out.

The TV personality fell over and was then laid out on a cement bench.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the incident before Howie was rushed to a hospital in nearby Tarzana.

According to witnesses, he was able to sit up by the time the LA Fire Department arrived.

The Bobby's World creator thinks the incident was caused by low blood sugar.


Just one day earlier, Howie was in good spirits as he “FLASHED” Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show.

While appearing on Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Howie learned that he was the most frequent visitor to ever appear on the show.

The 65-year-old said he was “honored” by the “wonderful” fact and gushed that he “loves the show.”

He added that he is “heartbroken” that the show is ending because Ellen always makes him “smile.”

After he complimented the host for her longtime daytime talk show, Howie asked Ellen, 63, where he will buy his underpants moving forward.

 “I always wear your underpants. I’m wearing your underpants today,” the funnyman said as he stood up and removed his pants.

As Howie flaunted the colorful striped boxer briefs he previously received while on the talk show, he continued: “I always wear the Ellen underpants.”
